Welcome to Mrs. Jones's Fifth Grade Class! I have been a Colfax Fifth Grade teacher since 1996. I strive to get to know my students academically and socially. I am a mother of two wonderful sons and I have a great husband who supports what I do each day in my classroom. It is my goal to make learning fun and exciting for my students each and every day! Teaching is truly my passion and what I love to do! I teach the Language Arts and Social Studies as a part of a collaborative team. I am very fortunate to work with a wonderful group of fellow teachers that believes every child can succeed. We have been team teaching for many years. We enjoy teaching together, and feel this is the best format to prepare our students. We are excited to get to know your child and you. Please contact us if you have any questions. Educational Profile: -I have been at Colfax since 1996 teaching fifth grade. -I went to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University where I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. -I am Mentor Certified for GCS.
